Hope y’all had a good holiday weekend. We did a lot of socializing, and socializing means lots of last minute cleaning and food prep. I did 16,000 steps on Monday, according to my Fitbit, which may have made up for all the wine that was consumed.
Are Fitbits for old people? I honestly don’t think my steps to the bathroom should count towards any daily exercise goals. On the other hand, it’s kinda fun. I do like counting things. And competing with my friends for weekly steps. And it seems to work for some people. A former colleague has lost almost 100 pounds since she retired; she became an obsessive fitbit user.
I’m always tinkering with my schedule. Trying to find ways to squeeze in more work hours and accomplish more. Lately, I’ve switched from the 9:30 spin class to a morning run after Ian gets on the camp bus at 7:30. I’m done earlier and I don’t have to deal with the crazy women at the gym who shower and put on a full face of makeup before their workout. I can it all done with coffee breath and bedhead. I have a bigger block of time to get work done. I suck at running now, but maybe I’ll be okay by the end of the summer.
I also calibrate all that running with two or three apps on the phone. I do enjoy exer-tech.
Do you use apps to monitor your daily exercise goals?
